Saturday is the mark for scores to be released. Simcorder got his in, Bryson is finishing his as we speak and I'm just about finished as well. We'll have a weekend extravaganza!

It's easy to do things in a bubble ... to practice on your own. Working together on a common goal/idea (yes, even in a competition) ... really is a great way to inspire yourself and learn. Basically, reiterating what you said, with a little bit of my own humble take on it :)

Keep pushing yourself. You won't be sorry.

I really appreciate everyone who entered into this thing, it has given me an experience injection. I thought I was somewhat decent and all of you have truly humbled me. I think this next contest around, I will definitely be involved and bring something better to the table. Thanks for all the inspiration!

Totally! I've been voice acting for about six years now! I've just yet to stumble upon any competition. Newgrounds is one of the top places on the net, if not -the- top for an Internet Voice Actor. :D I remember before VA's were eligible for credit, and now we have things like this! Super nifty.

Alrighty!

Well first off, let me say that this contest has been a HUGE success. There was a big turn out, a lot of new names with LOTS of talent and I'm especially proud of this contest since it's the first one I've led since FatKid.

One thing I found interesting is that on most of the skits, the judges scores were pretty varied which is a sign of how difficult this was to judge. There was so much awesomeness! I took the averages of the scores and we ended up with the top 4! (4th place was actually tied so I was the tie-breaker. I just felt that that skit had an edge, but that really does not take anything away from the other person.)

Please join me on congratulating the winners of this contest as I reveal them in the next post! I will only post the entry and final score. All reviews will be left on the portal entry itself.

1 final note, Voice Acting Radio is also airing today and has included the 4th and 3rd place submissions as promised. The 2nd and 1st will be in the next episode! you can listen to the episode here==> #25: Oh Bother...

Congratulations!

Nice episode, you guys posted it today? Did you record it today?
Also, "the next post" ... is that happening today ... or along with next week's episode :)
rock on, and congrats to everyone!

I have been doing that already so at least you'll have company! I am glad to hear that the judges were torn on their favorite submissions. It just shows how good all the skits were. Great job and congrats to the winners!

To have 16 out of 21 entries over 70 is freakin' awesome (The fact that there were more than a dozen entries at all is awesome. I've never seen so many). One thing I hope this and future contests do is bring all of together as voice actors and create a strong community and support network. If any of you have suggestions about anything for the future contests, let me know! There's always room for improvement.

I am honored and astounded that I made 3rd place. Astounded both because the competition scared the shit out of me and because I have achieved such a high place despite only starting a serious intent on voice acting within THIS year.

Great job guys, and congrats to the winners, especially my voice acting buddy Sirkillington! :D

I do have one question. How did you guys decide to take the averages of the judge's scores, rather than simply totaling all the points?

I would have liked to see how the scores were broken down.

Anyway, thanks for holding this contest! Again, it was a blast. Is this an annual thing? I just want to know when to start looking out for the next official Newgrounds VA Contest.
